Additional Solicitor General P P Malhotra, the amicus curiae and counsel for other states agreed to examine the 1994 Yamuna accord and look at the possibility of infusing fresh water into the Yamuna.
Meanwhile, the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) submitted its inspection report and cited several problems regarding the operation of sewage treatment plants (STPs) as well as the proposed plan of putting in place interceptor drains. Interceptor drains carry waste water from miscellaneous drains to the STPs that finally discharge treated water into the Yamuna.
The court posted the matter for next Tuesday, asking the Delhi Jal Board to adduce its comments on the CPCB report. It also asked the directors of IIT-Delhi and Roorkee to be personally present on the next date to assist the court.
